Stephen Hyde charged to the front of the U.S. National Cyclocross Championship Race in 2017 and 2018. In October of 2018, he sat down with then Cyclocross Magazine Editor Zach Schuster for a chat about his three unique custom designed and painted Cannonade race bikes, as well as his road to the Stars and Stripes jersey.

Beginning his professional career on the JAM Fund Development, Stephen Hyde then joined Astellas Pro Cycling for the road season and for cyclocross, where he raced from 2015-2020. Coming up quickly through the cyclocross ranks, Hyde raced in the U.S. and abroad during his storied career. He stood on the starting line of 30 World Cups and six consecutive UCI Cyclocross World Championships for Team USA. While he retired in January of 2022, his legacy continues as a coach of Team USA's Cyclocross Team.

“I have given a lot to this wonderful sport, and in return, it has given me so much more. During my tenure in cycling, I have learned so many important lessons about life. About who I am as a person, and about who I am as an athlete,” said Hyde. “I am who I am in part because of this crazy world of travel and hard work, suffering and elation. Of long hours in the extremes of weather, in solitude, and in the presence of greatness."
